I'm so excited to be able to share my next book, Toe Shoe Mouse! Written by Jan Carr, this book will be available January 2014. I hope to share more soon. In the meantime, the author has a nice write-up about it on her websiteif you'd like to learn more.
From Sleeping Bear Press, "In "Who's in Charge" Stella gets a lesson in responsibility when she volunteers to watch her best friend’s dog, Bella, for a few days. The only problem with this plan is that Stella didn’t ask her mother for permission." Learn more about the series at www.Stellabatts.com.
Here are a couple of my Easter downloads to help you get ready for this weekend. If you're looking for more rabbity activities check out the archives at We Love to Illustrate (2011, 2012). Happy Easter!
2013 is already off to a swinging start! I have a few new projects in the works and lots of news to share. The first of which, When a Dad Says "I Love You"written by Douglas Wood, will be released this April by Simon and Schuster.

Here's a sampling of my illustrations in the book...
The editor Kathleen Stoehr wrote in her notes some very sweet words about the illustration I created for them (Thank you, Kathleen!)....
"She captured the casual sweetness of a midsummer morning, the kind I recall from my youth, perfectly. I most certainly spent much of each summer break lazing around with a book and a sandwich, though I was never fortunate enough to have bunnies, bears, and birds for friends"
